Sawyer decided he wanted a Paw Patrol birthday party this year. In case you are lucky enough that your life doesn't revolve around Nick Jr., Paw Patrol is a brand new tv show featuring a set of dogs and their owner who go on missions and stuff. With it being so new, there are NO existing party supplies for Paw Patrol.
So, I had to wing it.
|Note: I've received a lot of emails asking where these invitations can be purchased or found online. I made these myself using graphics from the Nick Jr. site.|

We decided to just serve hotdogs & chips and then enjoyed some cake. I waited a little late to get a cake, so I just printed out a picture of Paw Patrol characters and had Wal-Mart do the "picture to cake" print. It turned out horrible. I added M&M's all around the picture to take up the empty white space and try to distract from the terrible quality of the edible picture.
Sawyer didn't seem to mind though...
My awesome friend Caroline owns a monogram & gift ship and does screen printing, so she made Sawyer's shirt for me!

We had a ton of toddlers (and infants) at our house, but everyone had a great time!
|Sawyer's babysitter "BeeBee" (also our friend Chris' mom), came and brought some kiddos with her|
|our friend Dana's son, Colton (see her baby shower here)|
|Our cousin Michelle's son, Wallace (see that baby shower here)|
|Sawyer's friend Brileigh|
|Our friend Hope's baby, Ella (see her baby shower here)|
|our friend Chris is a straight-up baby whisperer, kids adore him. (p.s. he's single ladiessss)|
Also, Sawyer and his "girlfriend" Rorie (Chris' niece) kept going missing and we'd find them back in his bed... watch out world, Sawyer doesn't waste any time.
I think the two pictures below sum up the success of the party:
